This only seems to be happening on your cloud VM's, not on
the regular build machines. I also can't reproduce locally.

It's showing a missing RT signal from the kernel to the
lease holding process. I can't currently see any errors
in the test code for this (and indeed any tests I do always
show the correct RT signal being delivered to the correct
lease-holding process).

I will try and track this down, but it seems to be specific
to your environment so until you can show it happening elsewhere,
this isn't going to be a high priority for me.
